1Ascribe to Yahweh, you heavenly beings, # Or you angels, or you sons of the mighty ; lit Lord sons of the gods
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

worship Yahweh
in the splendor of His holiness. # Or in holy attire, or in holy appearance # 1Ch 16:28-29; Ps 96:7-9

The God of glory thunders —
the Lord, above vast waters, # Jb 37:4-5; Ps 18:13; 104:7
4the voice of the Lord in power,
the voice of the Lord in splendor. # Ps 68:33
5The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord shatters the cedars of Lebanon. # Ps 104:16

and Sirion, # = Mount Hermon like a young wild ox. # Dt 3:8-9
7The voice of the Lord flashes flames of fire. # Dt 4:12,33
8The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh. # Nm 13:26
9The voice of the Lord makes the deer give birth # Or the oaks shake # Jb 39:1-3
and strips the woodlands bare. # Is 24:1,3
In His temple all cry, “Glory! ”
10The Lord sat enthroned at the flood;
the Lord sits enthroned, King forever. # Ps 9:7; 10:17

the Lord blesses His people with peace. # Php 4:7
